2nd annual SEMA Show n Shine. This was one of a handful of our favorites.

134112 / 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak

Number 76 of just 100 Challenger Drag Paks built for the 2009 model year,
this stripped down ready-to-build car hearkens back to the days of
factory-backed Super Stock racing. Regardless if you're interested in
preserving rare and exclusive Mopar metal or building your own Hemi-powered
racer, this 2009 Challenger Drag Pak offers the perfect starting point.
Dressed in a coat of Stone White, all the car's familiar lines are in place
and the untouched factory body remains laser straight. It's a regular
shell, not some exotic composite body, and the doors open and shut like any
other car. Only the lift-off hood with its impressive hood scoop hints
there is anything unique going on.
Lift the lightweight hood off of this Challenger and a familiar sight comes
into view -- a 6.1L Hemi. . Naturally, this isn't quite a production
engine. Inside the cast iron block, a forged steel crankshaft works with
forged steel rods, forged 12:1 pistons, and a hydraulic roller cam to build
a rock solid foundation. At the top, aluminum heads frame a high ram EFI
intake manifold with a four-barrel throttle body. Chrysler literature
included in the sale lists the engine at 385hp but, with this type of car,
that number is little more than a baseline.
Take a look under the Challenger and you'll find an equally blank canvas
waiting to be filled in. Underneath the engine, a specially modified
K-member features a drop-out cross member for added accessibility. A manual
rack and pinion steering setup offers control over the front wheels while
lightweight race-only front brake provide the stopping power. Behind the
engine, a T56 six-speed manual has been bolted up with the bright yellow
shipping support still in place beneath. From the transmission back, the
drivetrain becomes a choose-your-own-adventure scenario.
Inside, the car offers a stripped down interior. The front and rear glass
is glued into place for easy removal when it's time to put the roll cage
in. At the side, polycarbonate pieces replace OEM glass. A single piece of
carpet covers the front half of the floor beneath lightweight Viper seats.
The stock dash is in place but features little more than a few gauges and a
Dodge-branded switch panel. Behind the seats, a fully stripped trunk is
covered by a cable-operated trunk release.
Other weight saving measures include the deletion of the HVAC system,
windshield wiper assembly, airbags, rear seats, power steering system, Exhaust system, cross-car and side impact
beams, rear bumper beam and rear deck lid spoiler. As a product of the Drag
Program, the car also lacks a VIN so it can never be registered as a road
This is not a street (or even streetable) car. If you're not planning on
going racing or preserving it as-is, we've got some great alternatives that
will get you on the road a whole lot sooner. If you're ready to dominate
the drag strip like the legends of yesteryear, it's hard to imagine a
better starting point. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com

Mopar Shows its Muscle at SEMA
Mopar's media event may have been the last one of the day at the 2010 SEMA

Charger Redline, Dodge Durango Black and Tan, and the Rich Evans
Mopar-motivated Dodge Challenger. The video contains highlights of the
30-minute event. Brought to you by Sports Car Illustrated ( website

Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 HEMI - Special Edition ROAD TEST
Experience some sights and sounds of the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
HEMI Inaugural Edition. I was able to drive it on the same canyon roads
that I recently drove the Mustang Shelby GT500 and was shocked
at how fast and how great this car handles for being over 600 lbs. heavier
than the Shelby.
This limited edition 392 I.E. package will cost about $47,000 and features
the new 6.4L HEMI engine that is good for 470 horsepower and 470 ft.lbs.
of torque. The special interior is very flashy at first but fits perfect
with the overall feel of the car...which is in your face awesome but sedate
enough to live with every day.
Speaking of living with this car, during my grueling commute to work the
few days I had this thing, my fuel mileage average was 21 mpg combo which
blew me away.
Do I want this car, heck yes I do! But this price range has some stiff
The collect-ability factor is very high with this factory hot rod though.
Dodge will make less than 1500 of these so you had better get in line
pretty quick to own one.
